How would I go about grabbing the last 7 characters of the string below?
$dynamicstring = "2490slkj409slk5409els"; $newstring = some_function($dynamicstring); echo "The new string is: " . $newstring;
Which would display:
The new string is: 5409els
substr() with a negative number for the 2nd argument.
$newstring = substr($dynamicstring, -7);
From the php docs:
string substr ( string $string , int $start [, int $length ] )
If start is negative, the returned string will start at the start’th character from the end of string.
